From a debut author comes a story of finding oneself in a place all too familiar.
After Dulcie Morrigan Jones’s dad dies, her mom decides they need to find a new life in California. But Dulcie doesn’t understand what’s wrong with her old life back in Newbury, Connecticut. So she heads across country and back home in her father’s red 1968 Chevy pickup truck. When she arrives, she meets Roxanne, a girl whose home life makes Dulcie see that her own situation may not be all that bad after all. And as the summer comes to an end, Dulcie realizes that maybe it’s necessary to leave a place in order to come back and find out who you really are.
